Harmonized European long-term climate data for assessing the effect of changing temporal variability on land-atmosphere CO2 fluxes
Temporal variability of meteorological variables and extreme weather events is projected to increase in many regions of the world during the next century. Artificial experiments using process-oriented terrestrial ecosystem ...
Few extreme events dominate global interannual variability in gross primary production
Understanding the impacts of climate extremes on the carbon cycle is important for quantifying the carbon-cycle climate feedback and highly relevant to climate change assessments. Climate extremes and fires can have severe ...
Methods for integrative research on community resilience to multiple hazards, with examples from Italy and England
Resilience is a framework widely used to help address questions in disaster risk reduction (DRR) research, policy and practice. There is increasing demand for understanding this at the community scale. The paper builds on ...
